Stars for Novelty

I watch a lot of movies on Netflix. Once you’ve watched a movie, Netflix asks you to rate it from 1 to 5 stars. I interpret the points as follows:
1 – I hated it
2 – Disappointing
3 – Good / Average
4 – Very good
5 – Loved it, and will watch it again and again.

I’ve noticed that I tend to give at least have a star for movies that exhibit some form of novelty. I’m so tired of seeing the same movies over and over, that I really appreciate just about any kind of newness. This probably says more about me than the current state of movie making.
